Re: Ice maker for kenmore 77181791

Check the fill tube at the back of the freezer for ice build up. (top if it is an ice in door model) if it is plugged use hair drier to defrost. if not iced up run the ice maker and listen carefully for the water valve to come on. if you dont hear it check the voltage to it with a meter or check the contnuity of the valve. good luck

I replaced the inlet valve on my kenmore frigde, but the icemaker is still not getting water. Water is running good from source, and the feed tube to the tray is clear and not frozen.

Sounds like an ice maker problem. Can you advance the ice maker? Is it a whirlpool style ice maker? As long as the water line from the valve to the ice maker is clear it must be either the ice maker or the optics (if so equipped).

Why is my icemaker not working on Sears Kenmore 50562991

Two of my refrigerators stopped making ice because of frozen water lines going to the ice maker inside of the freezer door. I thawed the lines by unplugging the refrigerator and used a hair drier around the ice maker till all the frost was gone. After I plugged it in I heard water going to the ice maker. If you remove the ice bin you can check the ice tray to see if it has ice in it. If it is empty it is not getting water. It could also be a bad Solenoid Water Valve.

Ice maker not making ice water dispenser works well

There are 2 solenoids, one controls the water dispenser the other controls the ice maker water supply. Follow the tubing down the back of the refrigerator to find the ice maker solenoid. If the line is frozen between the back of the refrigerator and the ice maker it won't make ice either. If the line is frozen you need to check to see if the solenoid is leaking, this allows a trickle of water to continously flow through the lina and freeze.

Ice maker won't fill

Check to see if the water tube is frozen that feeds the water to the ice maker. If so, you can take a hair dryer and thaw it out.
Also check and see when the ice maker is running that the water valve is activted to allow water to flow into the ice maker. Is the water supply line not getting water for some reason.

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

Kenmore refrigerator side by side ice maker not making water going to the ice maker??.

Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Ice maker works but not water dispenser

Here are the steps I took to fix thi:. First, if you tapped into a copper line near your sink, turn off the off the tap completely and turn it back on again. Why? Occasionally, calcium deposits will build there and cut down your water pressure. You may have enough pressure to run your ice maker, but not enough to push the ice out of the line (I'll talk about this later). Turning the tap on and off breaks up the calcium. This will also fix an ice maker that's slow to make ice or makes hollow cubes.

Next, I just kept running my water pump (about sixty seconds or more at a time) until the water finally started to come through. When it did, a few inch-long pieces of of ice came through -- telling me that the problem was a frozen water line. If running the water pump several times doesn't work (I think it took me six tries), consider turning off your fridge for a while (be sure to remove food and pack in dry ice).
